Today’s reading is Leviticus 23-24.
Every step of the way, the rituals and requirements of the Law point to Jesus Christ, which is why so much of the Law was abrogated in Him. He fulfilled it; to keep it would deny His work and His place. He is our Sabbath rest and leads us on to our eternal Sabbath rest. He is our Passover Lamb whose blood saves us from the wrath of God. He is the firstfruits from the dead. He is our harvest and the bringer of a harvest of righteousness within us. His resurrection was a clarion, trumpet call proclaiming the way for us, and His return will be at the final trumpet. He is our atonement. He tabernacled among us. He is the fulfillment, the goal, the end of the Law. Hang on to Him.
Tomorrow’s reading is Leviticus 25-26.
A Word for Our Kids
Hey kids, can I repeat yesterday’s point? Yesterday we read that we are to sanctify the Lord and not profane His name. Today we read about a man who violated this command. How serious was God about the need to treat His name, and therefore His entire being, as holy? The man who violated that law was stoned to death. Granted, under the New Covenant we aren’t taught to stone those who profane God’s name. However, let us not think God cares any less about His name today than He ever has. Please, do not be swayed by our society’s lack of concern about God’s holiness and His holy name. When you use His name, let it be sanctified and holy; use it only in honor. He has done so much for us; He deserves it.
